    I find that on many topics of myth, religion, history, civilisation and so forth he often had really interesting thisgs to stay. Yet the less the habits of thought acquired in the physical world are allowed to play into these higher experiences, the better it is. In reality, there is no such thing as a scientific fact that contradicts spiritual science but there can easily seem to be contradictions unless scientific conclusions are consulted abundantly and without prejudice. The latter must appear at its birth as a harmonious, well-proportioned organism. For everyone can apply them and whoever does so will soon discover what life in every branch can be with their aid, and what it lacks without them. He is less qualified for the higher world unveiling itself in deep sleep; therefore the first revelations of it he receives are in tones and words; later on, he can here, too, ascend to colors and forms.

    The traveler on the path to higher knowledge, whether seed, plant, or flowering tree, will find directions and understandings, rather like a traveler in a strange land coming upon a map would find solace in the confirmation of his current bearings and joy in the delineation of his future path. The right thing to do is to strive for an ever clearer conception of the isolated real experiences, and to await the spontaneous arrival of new experiences which will connect themselves, as though of their own accord, with those already recorded. That this higher soul-being should be born during deep sleep will be easily grasped, for if that delicate organism lacking all power of resistance chanced to appear during physical every-day life it could not prevail against the harsh and powerful processes of this life. Someone can easily believe, for example, that some statement or other contradicts certain facts established by modern science. All these experiences are seen to consist of two kinds, which can be clearly distinguished.

    It is, of course, not easy to describe these perceptions, for our language is only adapted to the physical world, and therefore only approximate terms can be found to express what does not at all belong to that world. The things and beings of the higher worlds are closely enough related to those of the physical world to enable, with a little good will, some sort of conception of these higher worlds to be formed, even though words suitable for the physical world are used. And there are many more ways of confirming this knowledge for those who cannot or do not wish to tread the path into the supersensible world. When his body rests, man lives in surroundings which are just as real as those of his waking daily life. During every-day life man reflects on his environment; his mind tries to conceive and understand the connection existing between things; he seeks to grasp in thought and idea what his senses perceive.

And when this feeling does not permit itself to be warped by a liking or antipathy for some opinion or other, but really allows higher knowledge to act without prejudice, a corresponding sentient judgment results.

On the other hand, it would be an error to imagine these disclosures of spiritual science to be valueless for one who lacks the inclination or the possibility to pursue this path himself.
